Horn hit Trae Barry for a 6-yard touchdown to cap a 17-play, 91-yard drive that opened the scoring with 3:33 left in the first quarter and, after Austin Peay (3-3, 3-1) went three-and-out on the ensuing drive, a 23-yard run TD run by Thomas made it 14-0 just 38 seconds later. The Gamecocks opened the second half with a nine-play, 77-yard drive that made it 27-7 when Bryant scored on a 4-yard run.
Austin Peay came in allowing 251.8 yards (No. 7 in the FCS) and 15.4 points (12th) per game, but the Gamecocks had 296 yards rushing on 51 carries Saturday.
